GP3 driver joins Carrera Cup field at Albert Park

Joey Mawson

Sydneysider Joey Mawson, who claimed two podiums in the GP3 Series last year, will race in Porsche Payce Carrera Cup Australia this weekend at the Formula 1 Rolex Australian Grand Prix.

Mawson will be fielded by Porsche Centre Melbourne, which also runs the entries driven by Round 1 winner Nick McBride and gentleman driver Marc Cini.

A 2018 Carrera Cup race winner returns to a Cup Car this weekend, namely new Super2 Series driver Dylan O’Keeffe, who is making a one-off start in the Porsche Centre Brighton entry which Glen Wood drove last year.

There are also two new faces in the TAG Heuer Pro-Am ranks, namely Rio Nugara and David Ryan.

Nugara will take over from Josh Hunt in the Volante Rosso car while David Ryan, a former Porsche Michelin GT3 Cup Challenge competitor, makes his first start in a single-driver Carrera Cup round after twice racing in Pro-Am events with Fraser Ross.

Round 2 will feature four races at Albert Park, one on each day of the event, after a single practice session and qualifying this Thursday.
